as so many reviews stated or implied. So here we have a Scot about town who misinterprets the innocent flirting of Mary Kate as a sexual invitation, finds out differently and then arranges to marry her. He is 27, handsome, rich, has a castle, a great family, a friend of the king, soon to be titled, and to date had never shown an interest in marriage.
Mary Kate makes it clear she does not want to marry him and loathes his domineering, arrogant ways.
But wed she must. He obviously loves her, if you read between the lines almost from the start. Problem is he is a dolt with his wife not women in general.
Perhaps he should have told her about the sixteen year old maid he has gotten with child. Perhaps he might have been more astute when his childhood girl friend tries to create havoc in his marriage. Perhaps he might be man enough to be able to apologize. For all his good points, he is to me a bit stunted emotionally. Perhaps what drives his need to control, his inability to listen to his wife and his long periods of anger is that he believes his wife does not love him and never will.
At the end comes the revelation of truth.
People are not perfect not then not now. Douglas is a man of the world and 27; Mary Kate is inexperienced and 18.
She tries to be introspective and bring about change in their relationship, perhaps she takes a little too much blame on herself. He takes virtually none.
It seemed theirs was an "across a crowed room" their
eyes met and nothing was ever the same love, but they had to evercome their own respective failings and the mores of the time to their HEA.
I have gotten into Amanda Scott a while back and have read every one of her books. This one is not but but can be a drag. I noticed her newer books are much better than her older ones but the older ones go with the newer ones which I love but I skipped a few pages just to get to the end.
